Care & Maintenance: JANUSwood II & III


More than 30 years ago, JANUS et Cie created synthetic JANUSwood, an original and visionary product that exists in harmony with consumer needs and environmental health. JANUSwood II & III are both modern polymer materials engineered from virgin polystyrene. They are made in facilities that are compliant with prevailing environmental regulations, along with an emphasis on reducing emissions and proper waste water treatment and its recycling. Scraps are collected and recycled in other industries. JANUSwood II & III are 100% recyclable and extremely durable and UV resistant. They deliver unparalleled performance to withstand years of constant use in indoor or outdoor residential, hospitality, contract and site applications. They replicate the natural beauty and variability of wood without requiring the same level of maintenance. They contain no wood, and therefore are not susceptible to insects, rotting, splitting, mildew, salt and other environmental conditions. Avoid heat, as this may damage the JANUSwood II & III; use pot holder trivets or coasters. Drinkware in direct sunlight may cause surface burns on JANUSwood II & III products.
